    Finally took the plunge towards the Rezound and it should get shipped here tomorrow. Now I was wondering; whats the biggest battery for the Rezound without actually increasing the backing?

    What's wrong with extending the back a little?
    Buying the extended battery doesn't increase the thickness or the weight that much but REALLY increases the battery life!
    Really.
    It's a dramatic difference.

    I have the extended battery. It makes the phone thick and super ugly, imo.

    I actually prefer the extended battery for the extra thickness. The way it is sloped helps me hold it, grab it better. I've always used an extended battery when possible because I have large hands and the way the ridges are curved makes it very ergonomic on this phone for me.
    I'm not aware of any batteries besides the OEM size that fit in the OEM cover

    Eh.
    Different strokes I guess.
    I wondered at first if I could could get used to it but, since I haven't pondered it much beyond the first day, it seems like I can.
    :)

    Perhaps buying the belt clip case that goes around the extended battery case making it thicker still completely destroyed any sexiness the phone ever had.

    Now, when I remove the belt case, taking it down to only the extended battery, it seems positively slim!
    Lol

    Ah, perspective.

    I guess I'm a function over form kind of guy. I wear cargo pants daily so I suppose a big ass brick phone fits my style.

    But I can put my phone in the case or in my pocket at 7am, use it virtually any way that I want to all day and still have juice left when I plug it back in at midnight.

    A fair trade, methinks.

    I agree the extra thickness of the extended cover/holster does seem to make it brick sized but the weird thing for me is though the phone is huge in hand, it feels lighter than with just the extended battery and no case. Perhaps it's just a brain perception thing. Something that large should feel heavier?
    At any rate with the extended battery and case it feels about as thick as the Otterbox Defender on my Omnia but not so boxy

    Does anyone know how thicker the extended battery would make the phone in mm?

    Do any cases exist for these extended batteries?
    Do i need to worry about any specific brand being better than another?

    Can someone post a few pics and a link to where you are getting these?

    Thanks
